Hi Norma,

I believe Stewart's point about the inaccuracies in the early press reports about Kelly's murder should be well considered. Since Kelly's murder scene was in a more controlled evironment, the police essentially locked down the place. Until some official information was given later (and not much of that) the press were relying on second hand sources any in many cases rumors in an effort to get a story out.

I have been recently reading about the "Zodiac murders" in California and the police, in one case, deliberately fed false information to the press to see if the killer would respond.

In essence, I think Abberline and Co. had learned some hard lessons by the time of Kelly's murder and adjusted their strategy accordingly in an effort to control info that, in their mind, might impeed the investigation... Hence a likely explaination for their reaction to Hutchinson's story once the press got wind of it.

PS- Archaic, I am most pleased to see you back on board. Missed those little tidbits you were always able to find and you sensible insight. Maybe a little common "horse sense" is necessary. LOL.
